What is mold?
Molds and mildews are the term given for thousands of species of filamentous fungi. These have clusters of spores, at the end of which you can find tiny stalks that act as the reproductive organ of a mature mold. The mycelium, or the web-like body of the mold, attaches itself to porous surfaces and may contain chemical compounds that are poisonous and toxic to humans.
Molds result to the biodegradation of natural materials, which cause the spoilage of food and damage to property. Molds can also cause diseases to both animals and humans because of the mold spores, the growth of pathogenic molds within the body, from the effects of ingested or inhaled toxic compounds.
The reason why molds can easily attach to the human body is because the mold spores become airborne and they can be inhaled. Depending on the exposure to the molds and the tolerance of a person’s body, molds can have serious health consequences.
